WTN: 2001 Leoville Poyferre

This wine is absolutely gorgeous right now. Still plenty of fruit, and softening into pure elegance. Stunning!

What's Poyferre like these days, style-wise? I havent had any vintage younger than the '96.

It's getting more and more modern, but this showed some real classical elegance despite modern touches.
